Dec. 10 H1N1 clinic location, target groups changed
The Johnson County Health Department is holding a public H1N1 vaccination clinic on Thursday, Dec. 10.
The clinic, which takes place from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. at Sunset Drive Office Building, 11811 S. Sunset in Olathe, will offer the vaccinations free of charge. The building is located to the east of the Health Department.
The vaccines will be administered on a first-come, first-serve basis. An increase in the amount of vaccine available has allowed for anyone interested in getting vaccinated to do so.
However, the Health Department reminds the public it is especially important for the following target groups to receive vaccinations:
Persons who live with or provide regular care for infants less than six months old
Healthcare and emergency services personnel
Persons six months to 24 years old
Persons 25 years old to 64 years old who have medical conditions that put them at higher risk for influenza- related complications
